Mother Dina Lohan like daughter Lindsay Lohan or is it daughter Lohan like mother Lohan? Who knows, but one thing is for sure; alcohol and a Lohan do not mix well … a bad recipe resulting in DUI (driving under the influence).
Thursday night, 50-year-old Dina Lohan was charged with DUI in Long Island, New York after being pulled over for speeding 77 mph in a 55 mph zone. Allegedly during the stop, police observed visible signs of intoxication and asked Dina to take the DUI breath test to determine her BAC (blood alcohol content). Dina should have refused this DUI test on the basis it is a voluntary test, however, she screwed up, took the test, and blew a .20 BAC result, twice the legal DUI limit of .08.
Li Lo’s mom was taken to jail where she was charged with speeding and DUI. She was later bailed out of jail, but it wasn’t Lindsay to the rescue, an unknown source came to the aid of mama Lohan.
Rumor has it Dina has been drinking heavy and partying too much. Still being a poor role model for daughter Lindsay, who also struggles with alcoholism and has a criminal history of DUI charges.
Dina has court next month and hopefully she will be able to find a good DUI lawyer, Lindsay won’t be able to refer her past criminal defense attorney since she fired her attorney while still owing $300,000.00 in legal fees, see my blog “Defense Attorney Saves Lindsay Lohan Despite Being Fired” for more details on Li Lo’s legal mishaps.
Lamar Odom’s life seems to spiraling out of control due to drug addictions and now he’s added a DUI charge to the chaos.
The 6’10” NBA star and husband to Khloe Kardashian, Lamar Odom, has recently been headlining celebrity news with his concealed two year addiction to crack cocaine. His marriage to Khloe has taken a toll and now possibly his NBA career may be ending. With all the negative media attention, the L.A. Clippers decided not to resign Odom for another season despite his successful performance on the court last year. Now to make matters worse, Lamar was pulled over early friday morning by California State Patrol and was charged with driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol.
According the police officers, Odom was driving in a “serpentine manner” (too slow) on the 101 Freeway. When officers approached Lamar’s Mercedes SUV, they smelled heavy odors of alcohol on Odom’s breath and observed behaviors consistent with heavy drug use. Lamar failed multiple DUI field sobriety tests and refused to take any DUI breath tests. The NBA player was arrested, taken to jail, and charged with DUI.
Because Lamar refused the DUI breath test machine at the police station, his CA driver’s license was automatically suspended for one year. Lamar has already been spotted by paparazzi ducking down in the back of a taxi cab, most likely heading home after spending a few hours in jail.
Lamar’s life is a little messy right now, hopefully he will get his situation cleaned up and straightened out. For starters he should hire a solid DUI criminal defense attorney to contest his DUI charge.
